Synopsis

Sophie owns a chocolate shop where she sells Misfortune Cookies-dipped in bitter chocolate they contain messages she handwrites each day such as "Your car seems fine now, but just wait...it will eventually be a source of frustration and unexpected delay." What starts as a gimmick, turns into a surprise hit with customers. But when her ex-fiancée moves back to their small Washington town, he is surprised at how bitter and unhappy Sophie has become. He proposes a bet--she must place an ad in the paper that simply states "Wanted: Happiness." If at least 100 people respond, proving happiness isn't a myth, she agrees to a date with him. If not, he'll leave her alone forever. Sophie is convinced she'll win, but fate has other ideas when a reporter at the paper is intrigued by the ad as a story and posts it in newspapers across the country.

Great character development that lets you laugh and cry, while realizing ther's hope in the most unlikely people and places. Loved the sarcastic one liners hidden in the fortune cookies!!

Sappy but readable

Totally sappy and a bit outlandish the lengths to which these people go to avoid communicating. But I finished it so I guess it wasn't awful.
